Odyssey is a poem which mainly depicted a Greek hero called Odysseus who is the king of Ithaca and his journey home after the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus 10 years to reach Ithaca and he had subjected to all kinds of enchantments and challenges all the way to his realm.
   According to the video, after learning the life and experience of Odysseus, I found there are many similarities between Odysseus and Jesus inspired by the video. Homeric tales about Odysseus emphasize his suffering life, just as in Mark Jesus said that he, too, would suffer greatly. Odysseus is a carpenter like Jesus, and he wants to return his home just as Jesus wants to be welcomed in his native home and later to Godís home in Jerusalem. Odysseus had been to the underworld and go back to ground , likewise, Jesus had died on the cross and then gained rebirth. Odysseus is plagued with unfaithful and dim-witted companions who display tragic flaws. They stupidly open a magic bag of wind while Odysseus sleeps and release terrible tempests which prevent their return home. These sailors are comparable to Jesusí disciples, who disbelieve Jesus, ask foolish questions, and show general ignorance about everything. Itís amazing that either Odysseus or Jesus ever managed to accomplish anything, given the companions they have, but this simply demonstrates the power and ability of the one true leader who has a divine mandate to lead the people out of darkness and into a brighter future.
   All in all, astonishing parallels can often be found in history, and history seems to repeat itself.
